Information about more than 100 of the agencies collecting aid

Information about more than 100 of the agencies collecting aid.:
Hundreds of organizations are collecting money for
tsunami aid, but how do you know if they're trustworthy, or how much
of the money they're collecting they'll spend on aid versus
administration? I highly recommend researching nonprofit companies
before listing them in your publication. Readers may assume any
charities listed are trustworthy, so it's up to us to check them out
first. ”


184 organizations were found on January 12,2005.
